Michael was born on January 15, 1970 in San Antonio, Texas. He graduated from Leon High School with the class of 1988 and received his B. S. Degree from Sam Houston State University in 1992. Michael continued his education by earning his M.S. Degree from Our Lady of the Lake College in San Antonio in 2002. His work history includes time with the Texas Employment Commission in Palestine, Student Recruiter for Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Education Director for Texas A&M in Galveston, Dean of Enrollment Management for North Harris College in Houston, Director of Special Needs for ECI Health Agency in Houston, and, for the past ten and a half years, Director of Student Services for UTI Technical College in Houston.
Michael was preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents, and his younger brother, Kevin Todd Code in 1997.
Left behind to cherish his memory and to mourn his passing are his parents, Willie & Lillie Code of Jewett; the love of his life, his loving daughter, Madison Alexis Code of Conroe; his dog, Wuffy and four cats. He also leaves behind numerous cousins and other relatives; a special “Sister”, Rachel Gonzales Eberly of Houston; great friends; wonderful trusting neighbors of Sugar Pines in Houston; and co-workers at UTI.
Michael was a very giving and kind person who the family will miss beyond words. He loved animals and being outside in the country. Most of all, he enjoyed his weekends with his daughter, Madison.
The family wishes to thank the many friends, cousins, neighbors, and co-workers for their love, kindness, thoughts and prayers during their special time of need. A special thanks to Dr. James Simpson and Gayle for all that they have done. The family is very grateful and appreciative for all that you have done.
